Oof. I appreciate the difficulty of dyslexia. I also think that there’s an
important reason Jacob chose this naming scheme instead of using the
existing one. Perhaps he can come up with way to write it that interferes
less with your dyslexia, but still keeps the indication that this is a
novel future expansion enabled naming scheme?

As you’ve mentioned previously, writing concise descriptions is harder than
writing verbose ones. Could an interim solution be a short description with
some kind of footnotes? Additionally, in the case where names of things
become too long, abbreviations and a glossary could be used to cut down on
the horizontal length of the tables.

Good luck!
